    This army doesn't look too bad, but could definately use some shifting around. First off is to get some Meltaguns in your Assault Squads as you have lots of weapons capable of busting transports, but you seem lacking in ways to knock out any heavy tanks.

    The next thing I would like to see change in your list is your Elites. It is really not worth it to walk Terminators and Deep Strike is extremely unreliable and dangerous without any sort of protection. In place of the Terminators I would reccomend some Jump Pack armed Sanguinary Priests as your army has only 3 Tropo units, none of them able to withstand any dedicated shooting.

    Aside from that your list seems to be fairly solid and should do well all around. Best of luck

    I've tried a mobile list before, using 3 Baals, and 3 preds, and i find that the preds are next to useless. They never seem to do a whole lot, I had them decked out with auto cannon and heavy bolters, but they don't seem to kill enough troops with how good cover saves are now, you might find more luck with the las cannon sponsons though. My advice would be to switch them to vindicators, see if you can round out some points to get more to include 2 of them.

    Also I'd probably drop the terminators, not really sure how many you took, but you can use them to buy priest, some special weapons for your assault squads, power fist, meltas, flamers maybe, and find the extra points for the vindicators i think.

    Good luck to you

    I think terminators are really cool. They could still be feesible in this list (imo) if you give the tactical squad a droppod with a teleporter beacon.
    They could get in your opponents face 1st turn while the rest of the army rushes at him from across the board. Facing the immediate threat of the tacticals and the approaching assault marines your opponent will prob forget to take out the droppod. Then on turn 2 bam terminators in his face.
